Grass not always greener

I HAVE spoken to friends who live in Norwich and Norfolk and discussed, among other subjects, refuse collection, and have found that compared to Waveney District Council the collection in Norfolk is dilapidated.

In Norfolk you have to purchase a wheelie bin and Waveney provides the first bin free and we have three bins. Norfolk has just one which you have to pay for and most of the refuse in Norfolk is collected in plastic bags.

With reference to the combining Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft; if this is going to be a great advantage to both towns will it be so good for both industry and local councils?

Why then is it not suggested that the boundary be shifted to include Great Yarmouth into Suffolk as Norfolk is a larger county than Suffolk? Yarmouth would not be missed by Norfolk.

I would most certainly not like to see Lowestoft move into Norfolk control
